Today, on the BioWare forums, the company's community coordinator Chris Priestly  started a thread called "2 new screenshots and new release date information." His initial post revealed the earth-shattering news that two new screenshots have been added to the Mass Effect 2 screenshot gallery...oh...and the fact that Mass Effect 3 has been delayed until 2012.

An official quote was also presented:
